  There is a break in continuity just before the fourth variation in the "Forellen" movement, and I suspect that this is due to imperfect splicing between sides of the original SPs.   Turning to the more modern versions, Curzon's (London) offers the most sophisticated keyboard work.   Every detail in his interpretation has been beautifully thought out, and of these I would especially cite the delicious la^ndler touch the pianist brings to the fifth variation (an obvious indication that he is playing with Viennese musicians), and the gossamer shading throughout.   Some of Curzon's playing strikes me as finicky, however.   Why, for example, does he favor two tempos, rather than one, for the third movement?   lack >   The assisting musicians from the Vienna Octet are somewhat lack ing in expertise, but their contribution is rustic and appealing.     (Special compliments to the double bass playing of Johann Krumpp his scrawny, tottering sound adds a delightful hilarity to the performance.)   The Glazer-Fine Arts edition (Concert-Disc) is a model of lucidity and organization.   It is, moreover, a perfectly integrated ensemble effort.
